Dixie Plywood & Lumber Company's Green Products

 

Green Building ProductsDixie Plywood has always been known as a company that provides excellent services to its customers through new products opportunities. Today, we are hearing the terms 'green products' and 'green buildings' being used by our suppliers and customers on a more regular basis. In an effort to continue our company's excellent service to our customers we have compiled a list of the green products that we offer. The rapid growth of the green products industry makes conveying information somewhat challenging; however we are committed to staying at the forefront of this new industry and providing our customers with the best information available.

 

Green products and green buildings are defined in a number of different ways and none of them conform to one national definition. It mostly depends on who is speaking and what they are speaking about. For instance, green products can include: pre-consumer or post-consumer recycled content; no added urea-formaldehyde binders; low or 'no' Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) coatings or paint; originate from a local source; certified wood; agrifiber; and a number of other attributes.

 

Green buildings are the same way, as they can include: LEED-NC Gold certified, Green Globes certified, NAHB - certified, EarthCraft Home certified, LEED for Homes Silver certified and more.

 

Getting started we have outlined the various green building programs and the credits/points that are applicable to products that Dixie sells. The products listed under each heading are in stock or readily available and your Dixie salesperson will be able to quote you price. So locate the green building standards that you are being asked to compile with and you will see what we have to offer.

 

Please understand that this list will be updated frequently however if you do not see a product listed here please contact your Dixie salesperson about its availability.
